GRAPHIC DESIGN WORLDS WORDS
What was once generically called "graphics" and has more recently been catalogued under the umbrella of visual communications is today considered an expression of contemporary culture closely interwoven with a number of different fields and disciplines. A phenomenon that when viewed in close-up reveals alternative ways of interpreting the world, work, relationships, and hints at educational models that transcend professions and individual projects, addressing society as a whole. Yet despite this richness the world of graphic design remains largely undiscovered and unstudied, especially beyond the narrow confines of the profession itself. Graphic Design Worlds/Words investigates the works and history of the some of the international contemporary scene's most interesting graphic designers as a prism offering a multifaceted glimpse of the fields they work in, the interlocking networks behind the scenes and the vital links in today's world.
